Author has written 12 stories for Titanic, CSI, and Shield.
Thanks for taking the time to read AND review my stories. I love getting reviews. They make me want to keep writing.
I'll give you 2 guesses as to what my name is. I'll give you a hint...it's not Simply.
I'm a bit of a sarcastic smart*ss and can make that tone flow in my stories with my writing. When I'm diving off into a subject for a story, I do try to research as much as possible so I'm not throwing random factoids out there that make absolutely no sense.
I try to review every story I read, even if I don't like it. Reviews are the only reward that we get here at FF, so it's my delight to give out reviews for people taking their time to write a story. I've read some really good ones and some really bad ones. I try not to be mean with my reviews, but I will be as straight forward and honest as I can be. However, if I do review your story and I don't like it or if I do give you a lengthy critique, please don't send me a PM telling me how stupid I am or how you just love your story. That's fine if you love your story. I'm happy that you love your story. You're supposed to love your story but that doesn't mean I have to love your story. I'm not being an asshat when I review. I'm simply telling you how to make your story better whether I tell you to work on grammar or spelling or whether you just need to delete it and start over from scratch. If you want to tell me thank you for reviewing, that's fine, but I will not get into any arguments with anyone over my review. My reviews are my thoughts. Period.
Secondly, do not put "PLEASE REVIEW!!!!!" in your story and if I give you anything other than an "I love it! You're so awesome!!!!!' review, live with it. Not everyone is going to love your story or your lack of periods or proper grammar. If someone points out grammar mistakes or spelling errors, fix them! I know tween text speak is all the rage now a days, but remember that when you WrItE lIKe ThIs and being all "kewl for the boiz" isn't proper nor is it readable and I'll be glad to point out how much of a goof you are trying to be cool when you're not. Get on the FailBoat and take a ride in the woods and clean up your story. Periods, commas, proper contractions and sentence structure are your friends!
I've been asked how I come up with ideas for my stories. I usually don't get a whole idea or a whole plot outline with a thought that occurs to me. I'll get a piece of an idea and get that written down on paper. Then later on, I'll get another idea and I'll write that out. Sometimes, I can see two of my written ideas and I can build a bridge to make the two ideas into one chapter, or make the two ideas into two different chapters. Usually when an idea hits me, I'll write it down and sit on it until something else hits me. I may have an idea about where I want my story to go when I first write it, but more often than not, as the chapters get written out, those ideas fly right out the window when another chapter or another inspiration hits me. With one of my CSI stories, I wrote one of the later chapters first, then decided to build a back story and lead it up to the later chapter. With my CSI parody story, I was watching Trauma on DVD and the idea came to me about making a parody out of CSI and Titanic. With my CSI Facebook story, Jim Brass made a comment about Twitter and that got me to thinking about making a Twitter story for CSI but I nixed that idea when I realized I'd have more to work with if I did it Facebook style.
